Community led conservation – Join our team

Our supporters and volunteers are what make this project a success.

They have different skills in many different fields, including:

  • Fundraising
  • Publicity and Marketing
  • Kiwi Call listening
  • Bird monitoring and survey
  • Leadership
  • Group coordination
  • Education
  • Public events
  • Field work
  • Trapping
  • Administration

If you want to get involved we currently need volunteers for the following roles:

  • Fundraising – The Whakatāne Kiwi Trust runs on sponsorship from different organisations. Help us find new funding sources so we can keep expanding on the work that we do!
  • Education – Help us with educational work including our Kiwi Tracker walks; taking school groups through Ōhope Scenic Reserve and teaching kids the story of Whakatāne kiwi and wider biodiversity.
  • Event Coordination – Organising events held by the Whakatāne Kiwi Project such as Kiwi Chick Celebrations and other volunteer events.
  • Merchandise Team Leader – Manage the clothing sold online and at events for fundraising.
